I don't have an idea...what it would cost. I need to look at attach points.... coverage...etc. If you want stiffness.... then yes....a mix of CF/K....say 3 of each...total of six..... would be about 3-4mm thick....and offer plenty of heat protection....and make that case....just about bullet proof.

yeah I was not talking about the side. I was thinking of some king of bracket around one of the "headers" or even the vash plate...
maybe we can exchange ideas here and see what we can come up with
